Give these gifts that keep on giving.
If there’s one thing that will prove the past year has been crazy, it’s social media. Our Instagram feed has been full of picture posts from cousins, former classmates, and officemates who have amazingly transformed their bodies, done fascinating career changes, and traveled to bucket list-worthy destinations. Facebook, on the other hand, has also been full of announcements of engagements, weddings, and pregnancies. Over on Twitter, hugotone-liners have become less frequent and been replaced with feisty “first of all” comebacks. Yup, dare we say it, “you do you” has become the motto of Pinoys who are active on social media.
So this Christmas, why not base your gifts for your dearest friends and family on what they’ve been most passionate about online? Here’s a guide to kick-start your gift hunting.
